A Prayer In The Time Of Coronavirus

Almighty and all loving God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
We pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid19 virus
in Ireland and across the world.
We pray too for all who reach out
to those who mourn the loss of each and every person
who has died as a result of contacting the disease.
Give wisdom to policymakers, skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,
comfort to everyone in distress, and a sense of calm to us all
n these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected,
and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.

Archbishop Michael Jackson Dublin and Glendalough

Gender Based Violence



Lord of justice and mercy,
draw us close to those who hurt.
Let us reach out our hands in your name
to share the sorrow and lessen the pain.

Lord of justice and mercy
lengthen our strides to march for good.
Clothe our feet with your living Word
to trample the works of unrighteousness.

Lord of justice and mercy
knit us together as the body of Christ
that we may speak out with one accord
for the kingdom of God to prevail.

Amen
